Phali, who made his PSL debut in the 2000/01 season, has been part of the Cosmos set up that has moved up and down the top flight for the last few years. "Cosmos is my home, there is no way that I will be leaving this club because they have made me who I am today," Phali told kickoff.com. "It is not yet time to retire. I feel there is quite a lot I can still offer the club. "I feel that I am in the peak of my career even though the team has not performed very well this past season, but I feel that I gave my all and performed very well." Cosmos were automatically relegated from the PSL for the third successive time and many thought that the 34-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the month, would retire. "Goalkeepers are like wine, they are at their peak in the twilight of their careers and I am no different. "Of course I want to see more talented keepers come through the Cosmos youth ranks. We have a young guy like Buti Khoza who has enough potential to take over from me."
